Next, this is my Cat....Missour' FatCat.....doesnt he look like a big fluff ball and he probably weighs 15 or 20 lbs....which is ridiculously FAT, but this is his normal level of activity....NONE! he just lays around being fat all the time. anyway, my son took this picture, right before he completely erased my memory card....hopefully, my pictures are ACTUALLY on my home computer like he says, but i surely could not find them!!! ARGH!!!

Next are two cards I made with Fluffles the Cat from Stampendous. Both were colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Then I used my cuttlebug for the background cardstock and added a little bitta ribbon. They are very simple cards but I think they turned out really kinda cute.
Hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoy the nice pretty weather! We will be delivery BBQ to all the wonderful people who ordered from our fundraiser, so I know they will be eating some YUMMY food for dinner Saturday night!!!

Thinking of Having Kids?Do this 11 step program first!
1. Go to the grocery store
2. Arrange to have your salary paid directly to their head office.
3. Go home.
4. Pick up the paper.
5. Read it for the last time.
Before you finally go ahead and have children, find a couple who already are parents and berate them about their...1. Methods of discipline.2. Lack of patience.3. Appallingly low tolerance levels.4. Allowing their children to run wild.5. Suggest ways in which they might improve their child's breastfeeding, sleep habits, toilet training, table manners, and overall behavior.
Enjoy it because it will be the last time in your life you will have all the answers.
A really good way to discover how the nights might feel... 1. Get home from work and immediately begin walking around the living room from 5PM to 10PM carrying a wet bag weighing approximately 8-12 pounds, with a radio turned to static (or some other obnoxious sound) playing loudly. (Eat cold food with one hand for dinner)2. At 10PM, put the bag gently down, set the alarm for midnight, and go to sleep.3. Get up at 12 and walk around the living room again, with the bag, until 1AM.4. Set the alarm for 3AM.5. As you can't get back to sleep, get up at 2AM and make a drink and watch an infomercial.6. Go to bed at 2:45AM.7. Get up at 3AM when the alarm goes off.8. Sing songs quietly in the dark until 4AM.9. Get up. Make breakfast. Get ready for work and go to work (work hard and be productive)Repeat steps 1-9 each night. Keep this up for 3-5 years. Look cheerful and together.
Can you stand the mess children make? To find out...1. Smear peanut butter onto the sofa and jam onto the curtains2. Hide a piece of raw chicken behind the stereo and leave it there all summer.3. Stick your fingers in the flower bed.4. Then rub them o n the clean walls.5. Take your favorite book, photo album, etc. Wreck it.6. Spill milk on your new pillows. Cover the stains with crayons.How does that look?
Dressing small children is not as easy as it seems.1. Buy an octopus and a small bag made out of loose mesh.2. Attempt to put the octopus into the bag so that none of the arms hang out.Time allowed for this - all morning.
Forget the BMW and buy a mini-van. And don't think that you can leave it out in the driveway spotless and shining. Family cars don't look like that.1. Buy a chocolate ate ice cream cone and put it in the glove compartment. Leave it there.2. Get a dime. Stick it in the CD player.3. Take a family size package of chocolate cookies. Mash them into the back seat. Sprinkle cheerios all over the floor, then smash them with your foot.4. Run a garden rake along both sides of the car.
Go to the local grocery store. Take with you the closest thing you can find to a pre-school child. (A full-grown goat is an excellent choice). If you intend to have more than one child, then definitely take more than one goat. Buy your week's groceries without letting the goats out of your sight. Pay for everything the goat eats or destroys. Until you can easily accomplish this, do not even contemplate having children.
1. Hollow out a melon.2. Make a small hole in the side.3. Suspend it from the ceiling and swing it from side to side.4. Now get a bowl of soggy Cheerios and attempt to spoon them into the swaying melon by pretending to be an airplane.5. Continue until half the Cheerios are gone.6. Tip half into your lap. The other half, just throw up in the air.You are now ready to feed a nine- month-old baby.
Learn the names of every character from Sesame Street , Barney, Disney, the Teletubbies, and Pokemon. Watch nothing else on TV but PBS, the Disney channel or Noggin for at least five years. (I know, you're thinking What's 'Noggin'?) Exactly the point.
Make a recording of Fran Drescher saying 'mommy' repeatedly. (Important: no more than a four second delay between each 'mommy'; occasional crescendo to the level of a supersonic jet is required). Play this tape in your car everywhere you go for the next four years. You are now ready to take a long trip with a toddler.
Start talking to an adult of your choice.. Have someone else continually tug on your skirt hem, shirt- sleeve, or elbow while playing the 'mommy' tape made from Lesson 10 above. You are now ready to have a conversation with an adult while there is a child in the room.

I made this card with jammybella from http://www.stampingbella.com/ and colored it with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The sentiment is a stamp from Inkadinkado which i ordered through Loreen over at http://www.wishonascrap.com/ . She was great and was able to get me a whole lot of stamps from Inkadinkado that I was unable to find at my LSS. The flower is from K&Company and was part of a set that my Bella Sistah, Michele J., sent me.....she is an awesome bella sistah and always send me the coolest stuff!!!! I will post pics the next time I get HAPPY MAIL! hope you enjoy the card! and wouldn't it be great if we could just keep our PJ's on and watch cartoons ALL day!

This one is the cutie cute miss pompomabella. She has been colored in with glitter pens in black and gold , cuz those are the colors to our high school!
and this is a picture of my handsome youngest son...Aaron...so for any of you who are interested in how he did last weekend at Indiana Freestyle State....he re-injured his thumb/wrist and we ended up in Immediate Care with a "sprain" diagnosis, luckily it was not broken, and he will be o.k. in a couple of weeks and o.k. to go ahead and start training for Team Indiana @ Nationals!!! Anyhoo, he still ended up taking 4th which is still nothing to be ashamed of (just not what everyone was expecting! ) Several of the other wrestlers came over to check on him when we got back and were really disappointed for him and themselves because they had all brought their "A-Games" and they would have been awesome matches to watch!!! So thank you to all who consistently send good luck and prayers his way, he has had an awesome season and we only expect it to continue getting better and better!!!
I promise some new creativity tomorrow. I started a few cards last night but got tired and didn't get them finished, but they will be done later today!
